With Captain America: The Winter Solider currently the number one movie around the world, it’s finally time to share some of the filmmaker interviews that get into the spoilers of the film.  At the recent Los Angeles press day, I landed an exclusive video interview with screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.  While I’ve already posted what they said about Captain America 3 and the status of the Agent Carter TV pilot, it’s now time for the Captain America: The Winter Solider spoilers talk.

Since I don’t want to spoil anything on the front page, I’ll mention what we talked about after the jump.

During the interview Markus and McFeely talked about writing and designing the big third-act action set piece, the Winter Soldier storyline and how it came about, when Sebastian Stan learned the arc of his character, Nick Fury’s action scene, how the flying car fits into the relative realism of the Marvel universe, shooting in Washington DC, Stan Lee’s cameo, the post-credits scenes, Hayley Atwell, and a lot more.

And one last thing before the interview…if you missed any of our Captain America: The Winter Soldier video interviews, here’s Scarlett Johansson, Chris Evans, Kevin Feige, Samuel L. Jackson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie and director’s Anthony and Joe Russo.

  • Basking in the early positive reviews.
  • 0:50 – They knew they wanted to do the Winter Soldier storyline, but didn’t know if they should save it for a later movie.  They tested out a different storyline but it wasn’t as exciting.
  • 2:20 – Talk about when Sebastian Stan learned the arc of his character and how he approached the performance.
  • 3:50 – Why they gave Nick Fury his big action scene.
  • 4:50 – How the flying car fits into the relative realism of the Marvel universe.
  • 6:30 – They wanted certain DC landmarks and shooting in Washington DC was great.
  • 7:45 – Talk about writing and designing the big third-act action set piece.
  • 9:40 – They couldn’t find that could handle one action scene they wrote.
  • 11:10 – How they include a Stan Lee cameo in the script.
  • 12:20 – How the post-credits scenes came together.
  • 13:20 – It was important to bring Hayley Atwell into the sequel as a reminder of how messed up Captain America’s circumstances are.

    “director’s”

  • Hmm…

    Pain & Gain is without a doubt one of the worst scripts of 2013. It revels in its amoral ignorance by trying to justify or at very least get the audience to sympathize with a real life scumbag murder.

    That said, they did indeed come a long way with The Winter Soldier, which features the most intriguing plot and character writing within the Marvel Studio cannon. Not that there’s any real competition there, but they did a good job either way.

      Yeah Pain & Gain was a hard film for me to get into, specifically because the characters are morons and have little to no redeeming values beyond child-like incompetence. The film needed you to to sympathize but it never gave us a reason to. For any of the three leads. Then again, you could argue that’s exactly what a true crime story should do: not inspire sympathy but rather further contempt.

      I don’t think it attempts to make you sympathize with them at all, i think it revels in it’s moral ambivalence though.

    So they just confirmed what I suspected: it was helicarriers because it looked cool. Still makes no sense when you think about it.
